Looking to take your career to a new level?

Pupil Transportation Safety Institute is offering two important courses for transportation professionals in Central New York over February Break. 

For many school districts facing driver shortages, taking time away from their transportation departments for training is challenging. Feedback has told us that school breaks are a great time to offer transportation workshops. 

Check out the upcoming February courses at the PTSI East Syracuse Training Campus.
